Marcus Mosiah Garvey byl jamajský novinář a podnikatel, předchůdce panafrického hnutí.

Vydával časopis The Negro World, v němž hlásal černošskou jednotu a vyzýval potomky černošských otroků žijící v zámoří, aby se vraceli zpět do Afriky, neboť jen tam mohou podle něj žít černoši svobodně a bez diskriminace. Jím podnícené hnutí "Back to Africa" vedlo následně opravdu k návratu mnoha Afroameričanů do černé Afriky, zejména do Libérie. Rastafariánské hnutí považuje Garveyho za jednoho z proroků.

„We were the first Fascists, when we had 100,000 disciplined men, and were training children, Mussolini was still an unknown. Mussolini copied our Fascism.“

„When the war started in Abyssinia all Negro nationalists looked with hope to Haile Selassie. They spoke for him, they prayed for him, they sung for him, they did everything to hold up his hands, as Aaron did for Moses; but whilst the Negro peoples of the world were praying for the success of Abyssinia this little Emperor was undermining the fabric of his own kingdom by playing the fool with white men, having them advising him[, ] having them telling him what to do, how to surrender, how to call off the successful thrusts of his [Race] against the Italian invaders. Yes, they were telling him how to prepare his flight, and like an imbecilic child he followed every advice and then ultimately ran away from his country to England, leaving his people to be massacred by the Italians, and leaving the serious white world to laugh at every Negro and repeat the charge and snare - "he is incompetent," "we told you so." Indeed Haile Selassie has proved the incompetence of the Negro for political authority, but thank God there are Negroes who realise that Haile Selassie did not represent the truest qualities of the Negro race. How could he, when he wanted to play white? How could he, when he surrounded himself with white influence? How could he, when in a modern world, and in a progressive civilization, he preferred a slave State of black men than a free democratic country where the black citizens could rise to the same opportunities as white citizens in their democracies?“

—  Marcus Garvey
The Failure of Haile Selassie as Emperor in The Blackman, April, 1937.

„Hungry men have no respect for law, authority or human life.“
